About Children Of The World

  • Written by the same authors as best-selling nativity The Magical Christmas Jigsaw
  • Cleverly designed script with the flexibility to rehearse scenes within individual classes or groups, which can be brought together in one or two final rehearsals
  • Scope for solos and part singing if required

Discover a little bit about Christmas around the globe with Children of the World.

Every year, Gabriel and the angels celebrate the birth of Jesus by bringing children from around the world to visit the manger. Travelling from as far afield as China, Malawi, Poland and Australia, each group is finally brought to the stable where they tell of their special Christmas customs, singing songs and presenting gifts.

This charming Christmas musical is ideal if you want to involve the reception class in a production with older children.

A licence is required to perform Children of the World. You are able to purchase an instant licence when you purchase this book. What is an instant licence?
